The view from the top of the tower is breathtaking. You really get a chance to see the size of Seoul. Immense city.... More

Managed to book a table for four the day before visit. Had a very good Korean meal while watching the sunset. Luckily we were early to start of for the dinner since there was a 1 hour queue for the cable car we had to walk all the way up on the hill. Manageable and the first beer tasted really... More

Walk up namsam mountain is very steep but beautiful flowers distract all that. Love locks everywhere on top of mountain and alive museum. View on top of tower is pretty good. You can cable car down the journey.

We were driven up to the tower during the day hours.bHowever once you get dropped off there is still a hill to conquer. Once you are up,of course.the view is of Seoul. Once you go around the circle then there is the tourist shop. There are more downstairs including restaurants, and the locks area. I've been to many towers and... More

Going to the tower is a hike but you will enjoy the view. The observatory is as expected, you will see Seoul from above in 360 degrees. Seoul is beautiful. I also like the love locks on the deck, the place reminds me of Paris. A sweet spot for couples in Seoul.

Very crowded and expensive if you want to take both the cable car and elevator. Just hike and then enjoy the view but be prepared for huge crowds. Overrated.

This is definitely a must-see in Seoul. My husband and I walked up to the tower, and took the cable car down. I would recommend doing the opposite, as there are a lot of stairs to climb, and it would be easier going down them than climbing up. You can pay to go up into the tower, and it is... More

We made the reservations for dinner at the N Grill, and knew it was going to be very expensive. But we were not there for the food, which was very good, but for the view as the sun set. We never felt rushed, and was able to enjoy the view as the restaurant rotated during the whole meal. Its amazing... More
